HOLA MI FAMILIA Y AMIGOS!
How are things going? it has been a good and interesting week with teaching divisions and meeting two members from the First Quorum of the Seventy and one of our Area Presidency!
Las Monday we had a monthly zone meeting that was all about safety and stress. I think this is because of a incident that happened with an Elder in the Mexico City East Mission. After that we played some ole classic futbol! That night we taught our convert family and they are doing great!
We had a meeting up by the mission office for trainers (Elder Gomez) and trainees (Me) and it was cool to see the progress of all of the Elders in my generation are making. (All of the missionaries that come into the field together are called a generation.) President Crickmore said something that scared me a little, but is more than likely true......I will be training in 4 weeks. meaning that I will be the trainer... what ever the Lord needs I will do!
On Wednesday we helped our zone leaders. They had a baptism this last Friday and we had to help them empty the font by hand (because somone stole the pump that drains it.) It took about two hours but it was a fun and a cool experience! When we went four our weekly meeting with the Ward Mission leader he was running behind and we had to wait for him to get there. A little frustrating because we were missing out on some of our teaching time.
On Thursday we had divisions with the two new elders in our district and it was good. We walked to parts of that área that was a mystery to me.
Friday we had seven lessons and did some service,. We had stake conference Saturday ande Sunday and they needed more chairs in the Stake Center so we helped load them up in a truck, take them to the Stake Center, and set them up.
Saturday at the first session of Stake Conference Elder Pino, a member of the Area Presidency taught the members of the Stake about working with the missionaries. It was so cool to hear that as a missionary.
Sunday was the general session and a new Stake Presidency was called. This was so cool to see and the crazy thing is our Bishop, who is 33, is now a member of the Stake Presidency. Elder Pino talked about the plan of salvation and how it is meant for us to fall and then, because of the atonement be able to get back up and brush ourselves off and move on. He said there are thing in the world from the adversary that try to bring us down and destroy us and that if we stay strong we can return home!
So that is my week! the highlight for this week Zone Conference and an interview for trainers and trainees from Elder Valenzuela of the Seventy. He gave a talk this last conference titled Small and simple things!
Love you all and miss you all!
